    This November will mark 40 years since the founding of an organization that has gained greater geopolitical prominence than most non-state actors ever will. Millions of Kurds— the world’s largest nation without a state, oppressed by the autocratic states that occupy their lands— support it and consider it their political representation on the world stage. In the struggle against occupation and denial of Kurdish identity, it has evolved an ideology based on direct democracy, ecology, pluralism, and women’s liberation that poses answers to questions asked by political movements around the world for generations. This is the PKK— Partiya Karkeren Kurdistan...

    The lawsuit filed to the European Court of Justice, demanding the lifting of the PKK from the EU's list of terrorist organizations, opens on Monday 16 April, writes Yeni Özgür Politika. The PKK has been on the EU's list of terrorist organizations since 2002. Acting on behalf of PKK leaders Murat Karayılan and Duran Kalkan, the Prakken d'Oliveira Law Office in the Netherlands has presented a file every six months when the new list is written and then the file went to the European Court of Justice. Next Monday the trial will open aiming at lifting the PKK from the...

    Google has been flooded with 2.4 million requests from individuals and companies across Europe to be “forgotten” — that is, wiped clean from any Web search. Most of the requests came from regular Joes wanting sensitive information — like their home address or personal photos or videos — removed from any Google search results, the company said in its annual transparency report released on Tuesday. But among the others looking to take advantage of Europe’s 2014 “right to be forgotten” law were 41,213 requests from celebrities and 33,937 requests from politicians, Google said in the report. The law, enacted by...

    The U.S. Senate approved a must-pass budget bill on Thursday, removing wolves in Montana and Idaho from Endangered Species Act protections and placing wolf management under state game departments. A rider in the budget bill, sponsored by Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, returns the legal playing field back to 2009 when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had delisted the wolves in Montana and Idaho. Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho, chairman of the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, attached a similar measure to the House version of the budget bill. “This is a responsible step, and a...

    June 16 (Bloomberg) -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage firms 85 percent owned by U.S. taxpayers, plunged more than 50 percent after regulators told them to delist their common and preferred stock from the New York Stock Exchange. The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which has overseen the two companies since 2008, ordered the moves as a preemptive step after the New York Stock Exchange told Washington-based Fannie Mae that its shares no longer met listing standards, FHFA Acting Director Edward DeMarco said today. “A voluntary delisting at this time simply makes sense and fits with the goal of...

    Environmentalists say deciding now on Idaho and Montana populations will prolong the legal battle over U.S. wolves.Federal wildlife managers hope to remove wolves from the endangered species list in Idaho and Montana before President-elect Barack Obama takes office. But environmentalists say a decision before President Bush leaves office will simply delay final resolution by throwing the dispute back into the courts. They say the best course is to take modest interim steps now and then let the Obama administration take a fresh look at wolf management nationwide next year. Either way, a new administration more favorable to environmentalists will inherit...

    U.S. Keeping N.Korea on Terror List 'Indefinitely' North Korea remains on a list of state sponsors of terrorism from which the U.S. had been expected to remove the Stalinist country on Monday. A diplomatic source in Washington said U.S. President George W. Bush decided to postpone the removal since North Korea failed to agree on a verification regime for the nuclear programs and stockpiles it has declared. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told Japan's Foreign Minister Masahiko Komura by phone about the policy change. By law, the U.S. president could have removed the North from the terrorism list on...
